During his undergraduate and graduate career he studied his chosen field of printmaking with seven different accomplished artists.

Over the years his work has received awards in the areas of painting, printmaking, drawing, watercolor, and sculpture. In 1999 he was one of fifteen printmakers from around the country chosen for Outside Impressions, an exhibit at Governor's State University. The exhibit's organizer called the participating artists "teaching professionals who collectively portray the leadership in university print programs throughout the country." He has also exhibited photographs and delivered public lectures on a wide range of subjects in such venues as the John G. Neihardt Conference and Wayne State College's Sunday Series.
